Taking off our list is Dr. Jonathan Crane, a villain first introduced in 1941’s world's finest comic’s number 3. A former employee of Arkham Asylum, a rough upbringing instilled him with a desire to cause fear from an early age. As Scarecrow, he sports a mask that both shields him from and enhances the effect of the hallucinogenic drugs uses to terrorize his victims. Appearing in the Christopher Nolan trilogy, the only key pieces missing in that portrayal were his iconic scythe and his violet dancing fighting style.

Uma Thurman’s questionable portrayal aside this intoxicating temptress is sure to grow onion.
8. Dr. Hugo Strange
This is the one villain on our list that is sorely missing from the movie scene. A pain in Batman’s side since 1940s, Detective Comics number 36. Strange is a deranged psychologist that harbors an
Obsession with the Caped Crusader. While he is one of the few villains to learn Batman’s true identity, he has even gone one step further by donning the cowl and trying to replace the hero. Amish beard and all.
7. The Penguin
Oswald Cobblepot became a member of Batman’s rogues' gallery in 1941’s Detective Comics number 58. A criminal of genius-level intelligence, this gangster runs a number of semi-legitimate businesses that work as a front for his dirty dealings. With the exception of Catwoman, he’s the one criminal that Batman has been known to tolerate in order to gain underground information. Most memorably played by the squawking Burgess Meredith in the 1960s. His trick umbrellas and penguin’s style have made him a series staple for decades.
6. The Riddler
Introduced in 1948 Detective Comics number 140, Edward nigma supervillain presents a unique challenge to Batman due to his obsession with brain-teasing puzzles. A smooth-talking and quirky villain, his character is driven by the obsessive narcissism that compels him to commit nonviolent crimes in his attempts to assert his intellectual superiority over the back.
This master thief has had a love-hate relationship with the hero since 1940’s Batman number 1. Appearing more often than any other foe, she has been in everything from the 1960 series to Tim Burton’s Batman Returns to that god-awful spin-off and even in Nolan’s Dark Knight Rises. Unlike any other villain, her flirtatious relationship with the Dark Knight has ensured that
Batman’s otherwise clearly defined life is speckled with shades of gray.
First appearing way back in 1942’s Detective Comics number 66, this deformed criminal of two minds was once Gotham City’s District Attorney-Harvey Dent. Batman’s greatest failure, Dent was once the white knight to his own Dark Knight persona, cleaning up the streets from within the system. His tragic deformity caused a complete mental breakdown. Leading him to become obsessed with duality often deciding the fate of his victims with the flip of a coin
Not just Batman’s most physically devastating foe, he is the mastermind who eventually broke the bat. Debuting in 1993’s Batman: The Vengeance of Bane, this foe is only concerned with ruling Gotham’s underworld. Bane is powered by and addicted to a toxic called venom which serves as both the source of his strength and his greatest weakness. He was recently brought to life by actor Tom Hardy in the Dark Knight series. Though the venom aspect of his character had been completely removed.
2. Ra’s Al Ghul
This immortal is the leader of the League of Assassins who has dedicated himself to eradicating the evils of man. However, the drastic and deadly means he uses to seek these ends often put him in direct conflict with the Dark Knight. Appearing in 1971’s Batman number 232, he soon deduced the Dark Knight’s secret identity and sought to appoint him as his heir. In an effort to do so, he even sent his near irresistible daughter Talia to seduce Bruce Wayne in both mind and body.
Was there any doubt rounding out our list is a Batman’s white face and green-haired archenemy who appeared way back in 1940s Batman number one. While many of the aforementioned villains' mere certain aspects of Batman’s persona, the Joker is his complete polar opposite.
